Google published a blog entry announcing a new Cardboard SDK and the launch of what called “VR view” which content developers can embed in web pages and iOS developers to create native apps easily. At the same time it also announced the official launch of the SDK your Cardboard for iOS, allowing developers iOS embed content Virtual Reality (VR for its acronym in English) in their own applications when displayed using the accessory Google .

The official launch of VR view for iOS  and Cardboard SDK confirm that the company intention is now part of Alphabet to bring Virtual Reality to all platforms. They have released the Google Cardboard SDK Cocoapod as a file, which will ensure that developers are always using the most current code. It also includes several tools that help you create virtual reality software, including 3D calibration, tracking head movement and spatial audio.

In the blog post announcing Google has posted these releases can read that “For developers that have elements dip into their own applications and web pages can be the difference between ‘meh’ (mediocrity) and magic. That is why we introduced the VR view – a quick and easy way to embed content immersion on the web, iOS and Android “.

While the VR viewer  and content that can be embedded in Web pages, what remains to be seen is how long it takes developers to create applications that are worthwhile. Personally I do not relish the idea of ​​get this kind of glued to the face.
